In This Issue: Cantankerous Wisdom; Apparatus at Grain Bin Dryer Fire; Pierce Custom Rigs and HAAS Alert
Our first ENewsletter of 2020 features a brand new Cantankerous Wisdom where Bill Adams lays out why it’s not always appropriate to blame the apparatus salesman. Also, as the new year begins, we’ve already experienced multiple fire apparatus crashes. Details are below. Finally, FDIC International 2020 is closer than you think. Register for the conference and exhibition at www.fdic.com, and also be sure to look at this week’s FDIC Roll Call Tip video below covering the “Clean Cab Concept.” Happy New Year!
